Running Accomplishments:

Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)

Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Consistent aerobic and strength training.

Christie Clinic Half Marathon 4/27/24

Long-Term Running Goals:

Sub 1:35 in half marathon.  Then might consider taking a shot at full marathon again.

Personal:

I started more dedicated running and racing in my thirties.  Eventually I developed symptomatic bradycardia and SVT which required a cardiac pacemaker implant and a cardiac cath ablation.  It has taken a long time to get back to running consistently again.  Counting my blessings and trying to remain more balanced with fitness.

8.9 mi easy pace, 6 x strides.  Much cooler outside. Thought about work and theology throughout most of this run.  Oh, and the book I’m reading called “Crow Killer”.

8.9 mi before work, 5 x Strides.  Mentally draining week, worry about my daughters and depression, lead to inconsistent running this week.
